The Voice 2022: What Kelly Clarkson said about her departure from the show?
As is already public knowledge, Kelly will not be participating in season 22 of The Voice, as she needed a break from her extensive and hectic work schedule. Weeks ago she announced that she would be taking some time away from the competition before the fourth season of her talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show.
"I had this conversation with a friend, I don't know if balance is the word we should use, because it's never going to be perfectly balanced, right? Because everything comes and goes. I texted the other coaches and the executive producer and everybody and I said, 'I'm really sorry, you know, I have to take a minute.' And they all understood. They've been on this journey with me behind the scenes and they understand. Some of them have been through similar situations", she told ET's Cassie DiLaura.
The 15-time Grammy-winning artist arranged to have her summer off to show her children that they are her priority. "I think it was really important to show my kids that, yes, mom loves to work and I love to do what I do, but family comes first. So, when we need a moment to step back and we need to be together, that's when you take the time when you need to. We need to take those moments. And that's what it was for me. But it's bittersweet for me, because I love doing it. It's so much fun", she finished.

Camila Cabello will be the expected replacement for the Since U Been Gone singer and will take her seat for the entire new season. Clarkson had not made any comment about who would take her place until today, when she clarified that she has no problems with the artist and wishes her the best.
"I think she's going to excel in that situation. I think she's very comfortable with herself and I think that's what it takes to be a coach and be able to coach people. You have to be comfortable first and foremost. So I think she's going to do well and I hope she kicks (Shelton's) butt", Kelly said in a chat with E!
On the other hand, he also made reference to the seating arrangement and joked "Good luck with that. Bring a shield" when asked about her friend and former co-worker Blake Shelton.
